You know that editing your digital photos will help you take them to the next level and allow you to produce a final product you're super proud to share. But using a software like Adobe Lightroom sounds too intimating and you don't even know where to start...
So let me guess...
You feel overwhelmed by all the options and tools whenever you open up Lightroom.

You don't know where to start when it comes to editing your photos.

You've tried learning how to use Lightroom on Youtube but only ended up more confused.

You want to know how to organize and sort all your photos in Lightroom.

You wish you could edit quicker and more effectively.
Well, my friend,  you're in the RIGHT place! 🙌
Because trust me. I've been there too.
The first-ever session that I charged dollars for, I edited the photos on the Apple iPhoto application... Thankfully - a few years later - I discovered Lightroom.

And Lightroom changed. the. game.

I had no idea what I was doing at first and I've edited my fair share of cringe-worthy photographs, but since then, I've been using it to edit close to 10 thousand photos a year!

I've nailed down a system to stay organized in Lightroom, edit my photos quickly and more importantly, confidently and consistently edit photos I can be proud of!

So today, I'm going to show you #allthethings Lightroom so YOU can edit the images of your dreams as well!

Get excited because there's SO much more to learn and explore around Lightroom! I hope this lesson get's you intrigued and I can't wait for you to learn #allthethings about Lightroom.
At this point you might be thinking...
My camera's software came with its own editing program.
Or - I don't charge dollars for my photography yet.
Why would I pay for something like Lightroom?
My quick answer? Because Lightroom is ah-mazing!
But in all seriousness, Lightroom will allow you to achieve much better results than any other editing software out there (in my opinion). It will also save you a lot of time so you can get back out there and shoot some more!

Lightroom will also grow with you. As you learn more skills and start charging (if that's your goal!) for your photography, you will already have mastered a professional grade software.

Lastly, the benefit of using a membership software like Lightroom Classic CC are the updates! Adobe is always tweaking and making the program better and with the cloud, you never have to pay for upgrades or updates when new features are released.
Who am I and how can I help you with Lightroom and photo editing?
Hi, I'm Émilie! 👋
I'm a photographer and content creator based in Western Canada (Alberta). I love helping other photographers grow their photography skills and grow their photography business. Over the past 4 years, I've grown my wedding and portrait photography business to the point where I'm now able to photograph my absolute favourite weddings in the Rocky Mountains! I take on average 20+ thousand photos a year and edit about a third of all those shots! With everything I've learned while editing all those photos and spending countless hours in Adobe Lightroom, I can't wait to share it all with you!
What are others saying about my courses and content?
Finding your ebook was like a gift from heaven! I started reading it and I think it’s amazing! It’s easy to understand, and it explains things in a very simple way! I tried reading and studying this before, but the information was usually too complicated and used a lot of terminologies that I didn’t know. 
Marbri, @marbriguaro
Émilie cares! She's been extremely generous with giving me feedback on my photos. Learning from her has been easy and has helped me take my photography skills to the next level. 
Terry, @terrytran
Though I already knew a bit about shooting in manual you definitely explained it in a very good way and I wish I would have read your manual instead of 10 other sites first hahah! I love how you wrote it the way you would talk to someone, not in a typical straight forward way. That definitely helped someone like me who hates reading , keep interested!
Hunter, @hrumble24
Thank you once again for this great e-book, what a great resource! I found that your explanation about Aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed very easy to understand and I really appreciated your case studies at the end that tied everything together.

  Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still follow along if I have zero experience in Lightroom?
Definitely! I am creating this course for beginners, so it will be thorough, but also simple to understand! Whether you've never opened up Lightroom or you've used it a handful of times, this course is for anyone wanting to really get comfortable with Lightroom and photo editing. 
Do I have to pay for Lightroom Classic CC?
Yes you do - but trust me, it's worth it! Or even better, try it for yourself! I'll be sending you a link as soon as you enrol with a 30-day free-trial offer. Lightroom Classic CC is a subscription-based software, meaning you pay a monthly fee for it. If you purchase the Photographer's Bundle (which includes Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC and Photoshop), it will cost you $9.99 USD per month.
Besides Lightroom, will you be teaching about editing in other programs?
No, this course is all about Lightroom! However, I will be teaching the fundamentals of photo editing, so those concepts could be brought over into another similar software, but I will only be speaking to Lightroom users.
Do I need to be shooting in RAW?
Although I'm a huge RAW fan, you don't need to be shooting in RAW to follow this course. As a bonus, I do include a video lesson where I explain the benefits of each RAW and JPEG to help you decide which format suits your needs.
Why Lightroom?
I believe that Lightroom is the best overall editing software on the market right now and I want you to discover everything that's great about it too!
When does the course start?
The first module will be released on June 4th, 2018 and the remaining modules will be released on each following Monday (for 5 weeks). This allows me to create the next module's content according to your questions and also gives you enough time to practice what you just learned without any pressure to continue on to the next lesson!
Will I be able to keep the course once I'm done watching all the lessons?
Absolutely! You have lifetime access to this course. You can log back in at any time to rewatch lessons at your leisure.
Will I have access to future course updates?
You sure will! As I receive feedback from past students, I will be updating and adding content to make this course even better! You will most definitely have access to all these updates at no extra cost.
Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes I do! When at the payment form, you will have the option of choosing from a one time payment of $97 or 2 payments of $55.
Do you offer refunds?
Because everything in this course is offered digitally I do not offer refunds. However, if you have any questions or hesitations about the course, please feel free to email me at emilie@photosbyemilie.com and I'd be happy to answer your questions and help you figure out if this is the right course for you.
